Natalie Van Vleck Gallery Talk with Marc Chabot

On Thursday, December 6th at 5:30 Marc Chabot, curator of the “Natalie Van Vleck: True to Her Art, Life, and Land” exhibit, will be holding a gallery talk at the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury. During this talk, he will discuss the multi-talented, avant-garde, gender-fluid Natalie Van Vleck and her legacy¬†as a significant Modernist Painter and the founder of Flanders Nature Center and Land Trust in Woodbury, CT.

Natalie Van Vleck made her home and studio in Woodbury for fifty-five years and brought forth the first appearances of modern art in the area. Her styles included cubist forms, Art Deco designs in woos and medal, and a regional, precise depiction of the flora, fauna, and people of the area around her farm and studio.

Van Vleck, always true to herself and her beliefs, charted a life with creative, personal expression, visionary insight, and influential accomplishments. People can experience these ideals at the exhibit, which will run from December 2nd-February 24th and will depict over 50 works, including a number of her most important painting.

The talk will go deeper into the history of this magnificent woman. There will also be a wine and cheese reception afterward, where attendees can buy a newly published catalog on Natalie and her art.

Admission is free for members of Mattatuck Museum and Flanders, $10 for the general public, and $7 for seniors.
